Question Driving Gloves

At an autoX event I used MechaniX gloves as driving gloves and they seemed to work pretty well.

yeah, i was going to reccomend the same thing..

i bought a pair of mechanix fastfit gloves, cuz they seem to have about the same build quality of the other more expensive gloves, and i didn't want the impact gloves with gel pockets..

they seem to be rather useless for actually working on cars.. they absorb fluids rather readily, and most fluids if left in contact with the skin can cause irritation after a while, which prolly isn't good.. and they get wet really easily, which is bad for cold climates, like here in MI, and are then colder than not using gloves at all..

i then bought another pair for driving gloves, cuz they are less expensive than sparcos or momo and fit good..

grip on vinyl wheels is not very good though..

for situations where you have to have a glove while working on a car or such, the cheap cotton mesh/rubber coated gloves found at like walmart work great, cuz they are cheap, provide protection against fluids, stay dry, protect against hot and cold and the rubber coat provides great grip on hand tools..

The best pair of "driving gloves" I've found was a pair of winter golf gloves. For $20, you get a pair of thin leather gloves that forms right onto your hands. No slack or bulk anywhere and lets you continue to feel the wheel.

I get aI get a magazine called Auto Sport in the mail. They have tons of different types of driving gloves. I'm not sure if they have a site but I would imagine they would.

Hey use a pair of nike batting practice gloves. They are thin and cool enough to wear without sweaty auto-x palms.-Poo.

Full-fingered cycling gloves would be a good option, too. They have summer and winter models. Much better fit than bulky winter gloves because you need to be able to grip the handlebars and shift. I've even found some summer gloves that are adequate in freezing weather. For biking, that is Check out http://www.performancebike.com and see if they have anything you like.

You could always try shooting gloves too. They come in a variety fabrics (mostly types of leather), and usually come in either a no insulation glove or a thinsulate insulated.
